Asylum is based on the fundamental belief of relieving foreign persons from being subject to persecution or torture if returned to their homelands. Cases of Asylum are often met with skepticism due to the historical abuse of the system by meritless cases. This history can make asylum cases difficult to win. Winning, however, is in the preparation. A case that is thoroughly prepared and reviewed stands a much better chance of succeeding. Whether you currently have a hearing set with the Dallas Immigration Court or you are in the United States seeking to protect you and your family from persecution in your home country it is imperative to speak with a qualified immigration attorney to determine your eligibility.
Obtaining Asylum Through the Immigration Process
The United States allows for asylum – protection of refugees from another country – when an individual believes that he or she will be persecuted or threatened in his or her home country due to reasons such as:
- Religious beliefs
- Political beliefs
- Membership in a particular social group
There are no restrictions on who is eligible for this type of relief, as long as the foregoing reasons apply to the applicant. Gardere Carter & Associates, PLLC can help you prepare the correct administrative documents necessary for applying for asylum in the time period required to qualify.
Asylum Application Process
The criteria required for asylum is complex and requires extensive documentation to prove asylum status, including such things as newspaper articles supporting persecution, proof of abuse of the applicant, and police reports documenting violence against the applicant and others. The procedure is lengthy and requires that exact steps be performed in a timely manner.
Documentation from the applicant directly includes:
- Foreign national’s birth certificate or legitimate form of identification
- If applying with a spouse, valid marriage certificate
- If already inside the U.S., copy of passport and form I-94
- Three passport photos on white background
- If applying with children under 21 years of age, evidence of the children’s relationship to the applicant as well as their birth certificates and other personal information
- Written affidavit from the foreign national delineating the problems they have encountered in their native country and the reason why they cannot return.
